General Convention 2006

Send out your light and your truth; let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy hill and to your dwelling. Then I will go to the altar of God, and I will praise you . . . Psalm 43:3-4

From the "Don't Trust Anyone Over 30" Department:

General Convention is over. The first female primate in the Anglican Communion has been elected. And Katie Sherrod is still paranoid.

"Covenants developed and adopted by only a few privileged people have no legitimacy.

"The question of whether the Anglican Communion should even have a covenant is still very much in the air. The adoption of any covenant will change the very nature of Anglicanism in deep fundamental ways."

Note that the resolution passed at convention said that The Episcopal Church would "support, follow, and report." The train has most certainly not left the station.
